Fran Drescher wants to move on from "The Nanny," so she made a deal with Lifetime that, in exchange for doing this reunion show, she could direct an episode of "Strong Medicine." The reunion took place at Drescher's Malibu home, which is amazing. Seeing the cast again was great. But no Daniel Davis, who was doing a show in New York City at the time. This was not mentioned, leaving the impression that Davis didn't want to do the special. My question is, why not wait until he was available? Instead, Fran said, "Danny's late" and when she announced "Danny's here," it was Danny Bonnaduce. Not a great addition or a good idea.
The clips were fun but there was a scripted quality to the special that made it less spontaneous.
Bottom line: I wanted more. So far, the best of these Lifetime reunion shows has been the one for "Designing Women." I would put this second, and "The Golden Girls" reunion, which should have been the best, third.
